This is my attempt on chairs that has lots of M/T joineries. It is also the reason for building the mortise and tenon jig. The whole set has 138 parts and 168 pairs of mortises and tenons and made of Tanguile wood. The back legs were steam bent, the top rails and aprons profiles were cut using coping saw followed by router with pattern bit. I commisioned a shop to do the upholsteries. Finished with Ace Polyurathane Deep Mahogany stain-and-finish in 1.

Thanks for viewing..my jointer build is waiting.

To me, making a chair has always seemed a little intimidating, let alone making 6 chairs…very nice chairs at that. I especially like the high back and the color. Can we expect to see a matching table in the future? Great job and thanks for sharing.

Great job! Just counting those joints and the assembly time and effort for steam bending that you put into it proves that you have a lot of patience. Keep it up and hoping for the table to be on the next spot. Just curious, have you used locking dowel pins on the joints of the legs to the seat sides. Thanks for sharing.

Nice job, Armand. They also all look the same. Thats why I rarely make more than one of anything. I’m not good at repeatability.

@Bert:
I only used m/t joineries throughout the project. it took me two months to complete this working only on weekends and sometimes weeknights. i almost burned out from this project coz i can’t do other things while the chairs are occupying most of my shop.

@Martyn:
I cedit my shopmade m/t jig and my drum sander/thicknesser for the uniform cuts, would have been an impossible task without the duo. The biggest challenges were the 24 pcs angled tenons for the upper side aprons and the lower stiles, and cutting the profiles without using a bandsaw.
